A few months ago we brought you a glimpse of the all-new Canfield Brothers Balance, a bike Canfield claims is what a 27.5-inch (650B), 160mm travel all-mountain ride should be. Today a full list of features, build specs, finalized geometry, and pricing were released.

The bike features a new patent pending dual link suspension design and looks like it'll check all the boxes. Additional details include a 12x142mm rear axle, post mount disc brake tabs, tapered headtube, ISCG tabs, and asymmetric stays. From the looks of things, the Bros are also making a 27.5-inch version of their dynamal alloy wheels.
